We admire the 16th century walls built by the Venetians as a defense against the Turks. We also see the Port Gate where the Venetian lion still guards the entrance, the Square of the Five Wells, the Church of St. Donat, the Roman Forum and the largest cathedral in Dalmatia, St. Anastasia.

The evening is free to explore Hvar and to dine on your own in one of the excellent restaurants. (B, L)
